Frampton on Seven lies 9 miles south west of Gloucester on a bend in the River Seven. The village is long and narrow, strung out along the high street from the Church to the spacious village green known as "Rosamund's Green" (after Henry II`s mistress, Rosamund Clifford). The church, St.Mary the Virgin, is mainly fourteenth century with fifteenth century additions and has one of the six similar lead fonts of 1250-75 surviving in the country, good furnishings and monuments as well. The area around the church was the earliest part of the village to be settled. Evidence of prehistoric and Romano-British occupation has been found in the gravel workings in the area; the Gravel was being dug as far back as 1646 and the local clay was used for brick making - they sold for 6/6d (32p) per thousand on 1745. Before the 17th century agriculture and wool making were the largest employers in the area along with those using the River Seven; a Frampton ship was trading between Bristol and Ireland as early as 1377. Before the Gloucester & Berkeley Canal opened in 1827 many boats put in to Frampton Pill and the boatyard was still active until the mid 19th century. By the mid 19th century other trades had taken over: retail; building; cabinet making: milliners and there was a village blacksmith still working up to the 1950`s. The attractiveness of the village as a place to live was probably the reason for the high proportion of non-agricultural occupations. During the 1960`s several small houses were built unobtrusively in the gaps between the older houses and on sites of demolished cottages. Today Frampton still retains the attractive village atmosphere with many old buildings, some still thatched, and serves as an ideal base to enjoy the many attractions of Southern Gloucestershire
